One of my favorite Swedish stamp postcards is the one above showing a girl at her lace-pillow making bobbin lace. In the background is the monastery church of Vadstena. This stamp was engraved by Slania and was issued on March 10, 1976.
A variety of postage stamps on the lace theme are shown at Lace Stamps of the World.
The postcard below shows the ten most popular stamps in the contest for the most beautiful Swedish stamp of 1976. The lace making stamp is in the bottom row with the two Europa Handicraft stamps (the handicraft stamps were featured on my post here). The three stamps in the first two rows are from the province of Ångermanland series. The two stamps at the left of the third row are one commemorating the Royal Wedding of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Miss Silvia Sommerlath and one showing a chimney sweep. The other two stamps in the third row are from the Christmas- Medieval Book-Painting series.
